It has been reported that the patient has a history of travel to West Africa and she presented herself to St George's Hospital in Tooting with a high temperature last night. The woman is currently being treated in isolation from other patients.
A spokesperson from St George's Healthcare NHS Trust said:
A patient has been admitted to St George's Hospital this evening with a haemorrhagic fever and is currently undergoing a series of tests, as a precaution one of which is for Ebola.
The trust has followed national guidance and moved the patient to our clinical infections unit where they are being cared for in isolation, away from other patients. Infection control procedures remain in place while we await the outcome of the tests.
We are confident that all appropriate actions have been taken by our staff to protect the public and the patient.
